It’s sweltering outside and the lady at Tim Horton’s knows me and my order by name: medium iced coffee. While I love going to Tim’s like any self-respecting Canadian, I wanted to try and make my own. I experimented with using leftover coffee from my coffee maker, but let’s be honest, it was passable at best.
One day at the Farmers Market I saw that there was someone selling a cold brew coffee concentrate that would be perfect for my at home coffee experiments. It was locally roasted and brewed, locally owned, and tasted amazing. Win, win, win.
Perfect Iced Coffees Need Perfect Creamers
If I was going to make the perfect iced coffee, I needed a good quality creamer. With coffee this good, you don’t want to be using those chemical laden things from the grocery store.
I made a simple creamer using 1 cup half and half cream, 1 tsp vanilla, and 1 can (approximately 1 cup) of sweetened condensed milk. Whisk together until combined and voila!
Amazing tasting coffee creamer.
You can easily customize it to your tastes by adding in cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa powder, almond extract, mint extract, or really, any flavour you want in your iced coffee.

Grab your favourite glass and fill with ice. Pour in creamer about a 1/4 of the way. Add Dusty Plains Cold Brew Coffee and voila! The perfect iced coffee right from the comfort of your home.
